Pedal Revolution Used bike update 10-11-11

Pedal Revolution got a number of used bikes on the sales floor today.

Available now:

Univega Viva Sport. Rebuild of a nice lugged steel road bike into an everyday city whip.  58cm –$495. SOLD.

We have a lovely couple of large and small Nishiki Backroads hybrid bikes here. The first one is a step-through frame design 19″ – $350. SOLD!

New wheels, pedal, chain, freewheel, tire, tubes, cables, and housing and these two are ready to go.

The big guy. 23″ –$375. SOLD!

Tall bike, long wheelbase = stable ride, good load carrier.

If you caught the last bike posting, you may have noticed the liberal use of “excitement stripes”. Here again, is another prime example of what got consumers jazzed in the earlier era of bicycle graphic design. The Japanese really knew how to entice the American market.

Another little steel hybrid bike for sale: a Specialized Hardrock 18″ – $325. SOLD!

The next one is pretty special. This is a Japanese Koga-Miyata triple butted, lugged steel frame (nice tubes, very strong, very light!) completely rebuilt into a high-end performance road bike. A great bike for a cyclist who wants the benefits of the most current bike technology combined with the time tested ride comfort of a high-end steel frame. Every part on this bike was replaced, resulting in a nimble road bike with a  Shimano 105 component group plus an Ultegra rear derailleur. It isn’t cheap but compare it to any aluminum framed equivalent out there in ride quality and you’ll understand why these steel  frames where highly regarded. 58cm Seat tube with a 55cm top tube – $1,395.

Shimano 105 Crankset, Front derailleur and a Shimano Ultegra rear derailleur.

New Shimano 105 integrated shifter levers, Nitto stem and handlebar.

Nitto seatpost, pre-aged Brooks saddle.
